The friendly owners already expected us, although we were one hour too early. They gave us a warm welcome with the offer of coffee and tea and we could early enter the appartment. Our first impression of kitchen/living and dining room was that it is a bit small. But once we started to live there it was just cozy and we could store our things in the huge bedrooms. The two balconies gave us a nice view to the mountains and a bit of Matrei, but most nicely the green curved shape of the alpine and the beautiful waterfall at the end of the valley with its nice Tyrolean wood houses. All around the house green fields and close the castle. Good to reach by car but really quiet street.
We stayed here as part of a family summer holiday (2 parents and our teenage son) and this was the first time we'd visited Austria (driving from the UK). The apartment is superb - clean, tastefully presented, comfortable, well equipped and with great attention to detail. The owners/hosts were charming and friendly, but also respected our privacy. And the location is incredible, with spectacular views from the balcony (and every window has a view too). Flowers on the table and on the balcony provide a nice finishing touch, and I can't think of anyting we'd have changed. The road up to the property is (as you might imagine) quite steep and twisty, but is well maintained and not too scary despite taking you fairly high up above the valley. We only stayed for 5 nights (would love to return sometime), and found there's plenty to explore in the area, from local walks, castles, some very pretty villages and towns, mountain roads, cable cars etc. However some of our favourite memories of the holiday were just from sitting on the balcony enjoying the mountain scenery whilst relaxiing with a glass of wine. I don't usually give such glowing reviews, but I really couldn't fault our stay. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys wonderful scenery and great accommodation.
